Using Folding Feature in SciTE4AutoIt - example script

Recommended Posts

mLipok

I would like to introduce a very useful script.
In fact, he is not working. I mean runs but does nothing. 

Well, maybe almost nothing.

He teaches.
Just check each Function step by step.

 

; REMARKS:
; 1. before you start any example try to unfold all code section - you can close and reopen this tutorial script
; 2. each function says about "number of STEPS to go"
; 3. you must copy this script to SciTE4AutoIt to go follow these all steps

_Tutorial_Example_1_Folding()
_Tutorial_Example_2_Folding()
_Tutorial_Example_3_Folding()
_Tutorial_Example_4_Folding()

Edit:
And by the way I wanted to make a tutorial on YouTube, but I ran out of time and determination.
